Virgin Media - Speed Double ?
The Press Association: Virgin sorry for broadband mix-up
Looking at the above article and taking into consideration I am on VM's 50mbps package, does that mean I would end up getting 120mbps ( when they get around to doing the upgrade ) ??
Personally I don't rate VM's 'superhub' - nothing super about it....
On a side note trying to get a phone ( iPhone and a HTC ) to reliably connect to it when I get home is a PITA. It always takes a lot longer then it should for the phones to authenticate to the wireless and obtain a valid ip address and half the time our phones are always attempting to connect to BTHOMEHUB-H.
I have tried all the tweaks on the original superhub I had which is getting sent back and the new superhub we have had sent to us and they will only send me another superhub which is exactly the same ref wireless.
I've tried the below :
* On wireless settings --> Tried each speed setting ( 54mbps, 145 mbps and 300 mbps ), Tried WPA Auto and Also tried WPA-PSK2 ( which is more secure I would of thought ), Selected Auto on the channel as well as selected just channel 6 ( unless there is a better channel to use ). I know you are meant to have the channels about 5 apart from each other.
* Adjusted the DHCP timeout to 9999 or made the dhcp timeout longer
* Reset to factory defaults but then the SSID gets reset to something along the lines of 'virginmediaxxxxx' where xxxx is a random number. Which I do not want as don't want everyone knowing I am with
1. Virgin Media
2. Knowing I have a superhub ( I have reset the default admin password ) but with how shockingly rubbish the firewall and wireless is on it may be a security thing??
